Family’s anguish over dad killed as he walked on A55
THE family of a dad, killed when he was hit by a car as he walked along the A55, have been left “devastated”.
Derwyn Alan Jones, 39, was pronounced dead at the scene of the collision on the westbound carriageway near Llangefni on Tuesday last week.
Describing the 39-year-old as a “much loved father, son and brother”, his family said in a statement: “We are devastated by the loss of Derwyn. He will be sorely missed by his family and friends. The family have asked for privacy at this difficult time.”
The collision, shortly before 7pm, involved a Vauxhall Meriva car.
A police spokesman said: “Police are grateful to the witnesses that have come forward. However, officers are appealing for anybody who was travelling along the A55 on Anglesey between 6pm and 7pm (on Tuesday) who may have dashcam footage showing the man walking in the road to contact officers on 101.”
